Associated Press

BOISE — An 8-year-old boy from Boise has been missing since Friday, and the FBI has joined in the search.

Boise police say Robert Manwill went missing about 9:30 p.m. Friday in southwestern Boise and that he may have been headed to a party at a friend’s house when he disappeared.

About 20 FBI agents and dozens of local residents were assisting in the search over the weekend.

The Boise Police Department says it will hold a press conference about the search today.

On Sunday, Deputy Chief Jim Kerns pleaded with the public for help finding Robert, who is described as 4 feet, 2 inches tall, about 50 pounds, and wearing blue jeans, black shoes, and either a brown shirt with the words, “Andy don’t need no Mic” or a blue shirt with a superman symbol on the front.
